Library Search not working

The Library Search isn’t working properly. An ‘Anywhere’ search does not find all the records with the search term.

In one database it seems like the records added after a certain date don’t show up. In other databases what is found seems random. File type doesn’t seem to matter.

The files that aren’t found in the app show up in a spotlight search.

I verified the databases with no failures.

I’ve been using EF for several years, and just noticed this recently.

It sounds like maybe your library’s index files are damaged. You could try rebuilding them. There is more information on this page.
